“The whole thing with Markelle is messed up,” Embiid says. “It should not have happened. Obviously, it has something to do with his shoulder– I saw that they said it wasn’t the shoulder, but I don’t believe it. “With Jahlil, I really appreciate that he didn’t want to cause a scene,” he says. “If it was me, I feel like I would have lost it. I don’t know if I could have handled it.”

Embiid makes headlines and ruffles feathers when he talks like this. Same as he did when he co-opted “The Process” as his nickname. Teammates mostly are amused by it. “He loves to poke the bear– he thrives on it,” Stauskas says. “I’ve never really seen anything like it. It’s different, but it works.” In the end, trusting the process really means trusting Embiid. “We encourage him to explore and be a little bit unfiltered,” Brown says with a smile. “That’s how he lives. And that’s how he plays.”

“He’s out for probably a good couple of games,” said Rivers, who was already without opening night starters power forward Blake Griffin due to a left MCL sprain and point guard Patrick Beverley, who is out for the season after undergoing right knee surgery. “I guess he took a pretty hard fall in the fourth quarter,” Rivers added of Gallinari. “I honestly never saw it, then I got a call after the game about it, and then you go and look, and it was a pretty good fall.”

Storyline: Danilo Gallinari Injury
You created your own clothing line with Honor The Gift. Why the name, and what are you trying to do with it? Russell Westbrook: Obviously fashion is something I love and do and embrace. Going back this past year and half, just trying to figure out the name, and I came up with Honor The Gift. Obviously ‘Why Not?’ is my motto but I believe that it all relates back. Because I believe that everybody’s been given a gift, regardless of what it is. I think everybody in the world has a gift. It’s something that’s not just a regular name, but something to relate to, because I think it’s important.

ESPN: Has becoming a daddy changed you? Russell Westbrook: I think the moment we knew we were having Noah was the moment it changed me. For the good, obviously. You start to think about the things that best benefit him. Everything in life revolves around him. Do you look at your job differently now that you’re a dad? Are some things less important, more important? Russell Westbrook: Yeah, you know what, it’s a balance. I like to get to the gym early. I get here first and work on my game. But Noah wakes up really early, and I might have been gone on the road for six or seven days, and he hasn’t seen me in a while. Then I’m staying at home. Which is OK, because that’s more important to me than anything. That’s just something I’ve had to get used to.
